Seriously, the Seasonal Playground Games is no longer a participation event. You now have to win it to complete it. How are you supposed to do this when the number of players on each team aren’t even from the get or if players are dropped during the session?
Please fix this and while you’re at it, make it the best of 3 games like FH5.
This is all the worse because of how abysmal this week’s combination is. Sure, let’s have 50-year-old classic muscle cars, all of which are RWD and have poor handling and little grip in the best of circumstances, hooning around a FROZEN LAKEBED with absolutely zero traction! It blew my mind that I had to buy upgrades not just to be effective, but to actually drive anywhere in the first place, because I was just spinning my wheels on my first attempt. Oh, and if you try throwing snow tires on any of the C-class cars eligible for the event, they wind up getting sent well into B-class and can no longer be used. I wound up going to a D-class Trans-Am and giving it snow tires and AWD, which pushed it to a high C. Even then our team lost the first round, and I was having visions of being stuck for hours, but we clutched the second and then dominated the next two.
I’ve still pretty much given up on FH4 but after seeing that from PD_Top_Gun I thought I’d give it a run. Unfortunately (lol) my team won so I can’t say it is back to participation. Hope so. After the first round win 1 on the other team bailed. By the end of round 2 it was down to 6 vs 2. I got the impression nobody was working hard for points and just in it for the completion.
As for Backstage Passes returning MR_T5654, do you mean the “prize” for the series 50% ? I guess some will be able to use them but it doesn’t help me. I’ve got all the cars in the current offerings and unless they restore the voting and new additions to the line bit all my BP points are worthless. But gee thanks devs for finally making the points visible so I know just how much valueless currency I have
